 SOHOjobs.com SOHOjobs.org SOHOjobs.net has been online since 1998 and has undergone many changes as we have grown. In 2008 we realized it was time to make a substantial upgrade to the site. We decided on DesignB Studios a small firm out of Loudoun County Virginia (http://wasdmz2.courts.state.va.us/CJISWeb/) owned and operated by Brian Reynolds. This was our mistake.


This atrocious ordeal with DesignBStudios was filled with lack of skill, incompetence, mismanagement and complete insolence on the part of the design firm. This nightmare with Design B Studios dragged out well over a year. The result was a broken, unfinished site that was never delivered despite a price tag well over $30.000 (paid in full by us, by the way). When we demanded the unfinished site after paying the final payment as per the contract, DesignB Studios attempted to extort additional funds from us, refusing to turn over the site unless we paid. 

Moreover, DesignB Studios obtained a misspelled version of the SOHOjobs URL with the hopes of benefiting from our brand. This form of typosquatting is highly unethical, especially when the squatter is a paid contractor. DesignB Studios not only registered the domain name in bad faith, but then put advertising and affiliate links attempting to profit from our traffic while also driving click-thrus to our competition.

Once they discovered that we were on to them, they quickly attempted to cover their tracks by changing the content of the typosquatted URL and then setting robots to HIDE the archive of the old page. Luckily we have a page shot and will be posting this online for you to see very soon.

We've read other posts which can be found online by searching for "DesignB Studios" that would lead us to believe that we may not be the only company that has encountered these problems with DesignBStudios.  At this time, we cannot attest to the factual nature of these posts as we are still attempting to locate and talk to these individuals. As a result, we can only tell you what we have discovered online from our own research. We encourage you to do your own research as well. Had we only discovered these posts online before we contracted with Design B Studios we surely would not have found ourselves in this situation.

In the end, and for more than $30,000, all we ever received from DesignB Studios was long, irrational and babbling letters from Mr Reynolds about the various reasons why he was unable or unwilling to deliver the completed project, or why he thought he was entitled to even MORE money!  This is now simply a matter for the courts to work out (and from the looks of the Loudoun County courts website, Mr Reynolds is no stranger to them!)

What is typo-squatting

Typo-squatting refers to the practice of registering domain names that are typos of their target domains, which usually host websites with significant traffic.

From the business perspective, many of the typo-squatting cases involve bad-faith domain registrations or trademark violations. Worse yet, it is not uncommon to see a typo domain displaying ads from competitors of the target-domain owner or even negative ads against the owner.

----------------------------------------------

To this day, Brian Reynolds and Design B Studios still uses the SOHOjobs images in their portfolio. Luckly, we receive emails from their potential customers who are interested in our experience with them. We are happy to give our honest opinion!

The challenge of meeting your daily and weekly sales goals makes this a fun and exciting career.

Would you have exceptional listening skills with a customer describing a problem with their computer -- and you help them work through the issues? As a Cloud 10 technical support agent you answer inbound customer calls, gather data, and analyze symptoms to figure out solutions to common technical problems. With this job, every day you walk away with the satisfaction that you've helped customers resolve problems through your specialized help and expertise.

Assessments 

You will be required to complete a phone interview and online assessment before you can be hired. Besides general questions about your work history and education you will be asked scenerio questions pertaining to customer service such as "tell me about a time when you dealt with a difficult customer" or "how did you handle a difficult customer?"

Another aspect of the phone interview will involve completing simple Internet and computers tasks. For instance, you will be asked to visit a variety of websites (one might be the Transcom or Cloud10 website, so be prepared!) You will be given a list of tasks to complete such as finding the name of the CEO or the address of a local office. You will also be asked to complete a Google search (topics will vary) that generally involves finding the best resources and understanding the difference between a valuable website source and advertising or marketing messages. You may also be asked to type a document using your word processing skills that you will email to the interviewer. 

You must also submit your computer through a series of tests to make sure that your software is up to date and that you do not have viruses.

SOHO Tips and Advice

Lionbridge is only interested in SERIOUS employees. Therefore, it might be a good idea to avoid telling the interviewer that you need to work from home because you have children. Some SOHO'ers have reported that they were turned down for this reason after being told that the Lionbridge interviewer didn't think they could focus on their job since their children were a priority. 

Much of the Practical portion of the exam does not necessary have one right or wrong answer. Lionbridge is instead looking for your reasoning skills and your ability to decipher the results of Internet search returns. SOHO'ers who are hired tend to be those who are familiar with the Internet and search engines and have a good understanding of the way that users locate information online. 

If you pass both parts of the test you may experience a delay before you can actually begin to work. Do not worry. This is normal as Lionbridge has hundreds of new hires and tasks to assign. Be patient. Do not pesture the hiring manager with phone calls or emails as this may cost you the opportunity to work for them. 

Lionbridge will probably ask for your bank account information and other personal information after they offer you employment. This is standard and nothing to be concerned about. Most Lionbridge employees are paid via direct deposit so your account information will be needed so they can deposit your earnings. You will also be required to complete a W-9 and timesheet.
